Beskrivning av projektet
The aim of the project "Cash and/or carry: The challenges and modalities of delivering aid in conflict zones" is to develop a conceptual framework for selecting effective delivery modalities for humanitarian aid in conflict zones. Extant research on delivery modalities juxtaposes the deliveries of goods in-kind with delivering cash as a commodity to beneficiaries. This project extends the dual view of cash vs. in-kind deliveries by (a) recognising that they are not mutually exclusive, (b) investigating when and how to switch between them in a dynamically evolving conflict environment, and (c) by further investigating also other options of de-coupling material and financial flows at other echelons in the supply chain. The project will be carried out with regards to two conflict zones: Syria, and Ukraine.
